Patients with ALS, or Lou Gehrig’s disease, often have an issue with mobility, so traveling long distances routinely for care is burdensome. To enhance the quality of life and care for ALS patients, Penn State Health, a multi-hospital health system in Pennsylvania, partnered with American Well to build out its teleALS program.
Read the case study to learn how Penn State Health uses telehealth to:
- Give patients remote access to their multidisciplinary team of providers
- Conduct visits ranging from 30 minutes to 4 hours in length
- Save ALS patients more than 8,000 miles of travel
- Free up in-person visits for new or high acuity patients
